In a NASA wide exercise an array of robots, spacesuit clad "astronauts" and extreme environment habitat modules converged at Moses Lake. WA for a week long experiment on living/working in the extreme enviornment of the Moon simulation. Prototypes for future moon rovers and space suits are tested at Moses Lake, Washington. The low-slung Crew Mobility Chassis (foreground) can be operated manually or robotically. Behind are two ATHLETEs (All-Terrain Hex-Limbed Extra-Terrestrial...

NASA's 50th Anniversay year. Panel discussion with four of NASA AMES's past center directors on how their tenure effected Ames and NASA. On the projects they pushed for and/or pushed forward and the culture of the center and the agency and how that worked for or against Ames, as well as major contributions of the time made by Ames Research Center. Panel L-R; Hans Mark, Sy Syvertson, Dale Compton, Scott Hubbard and Pete Worden, present director. (Past Directors served for periods from 1969 thru... Topic: Where -- Ames Research Center (ARC)
Photographer: JPL P-21762 C This color picture of Ganymede in the region 30 _ S 180 _ W shows features as small as 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) across. Shown is a bright halo impact crater that shows the fresh material thrown out of the crater. In the background is bright grooved terrain that may be the result of shearing of the surface materials along fault planes. The dark background material is the ancient heavily cratered terrain--the oldest material preserved on the Ganymede surface.
